CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s largest city plans to host free drive-in movie events this summer.

The city of Charleston said “Frozen 2” will be shown on June 9, “Moana” on July 7 and “Godzilla vs. Kong” on Aug. 4.

They’ll be shown in the parking lot of the Big Lots on Patrick Street. Each movie night will begin with a 30-minute cartoon.

Parking will start 90 minutes before each event and be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Charleston Mayor, Amy Shuler Goodwin, said the city’s drive-in movies last year were a big success. She said the city received positive feedback from residents looking for outdoor activities during the coronavirus pandemic.
